Side announced it received new funding for its real estate brokerage platform that lets professionals launch their own boutique brands.
The startup raised $35 million in new funding. This funding was raised in a Series C found led by Sapphire Ventures. Paul Levine, managing director at Sapphire, will join Side’s Board of Directors. Trinity Ventures, Matrix Partners and several strategic real estate investors joined in this round. The startup has raised a total of $60 million thus far.
Side, based in San Francisco, lets agents, teams, and independent brokerages create successful businesses and boutique brands that are fully agent-owned. The company exclusively partners with the best agents, empowering them with proprietary technology and a support team so they can be more productive, advance their businesses and serve their clients.
“By bringing the best agents in each market together and empowering them with a game plan, support team, and one-of-a-kind technology platform that delivers a premium service, they’re able to provide the best experience and results to more buyers and sellers,” said Side CEO Guy Gal in a statement. “What consumers want most is a great experience and great results, and with experienced agents is the best way to buy or sell a property, now and in the future.”
